    If I have a pistol that I would like to add a stock but keep the short barrel, would that be registered as an AOW or SBR?
    Or something else entirely?

    It would have to be registered as an SBR. You can put stocks on pistols if they're black powder revolvers, or if you put a 16" carbine barrel on them

    AOW's must be built from "virgin" rifle or shotgun recievers that have never had a stock on them.

    Examples of AOW's are the Serbu Super Shorty 12 Ga pump action pistol built on virgin Mossberg recievers registered as AOW.

    If it has a stock, it isnt an AOW. A smoothbore pistol is one of the main AOW categories. If it has a stock, it isnt a pistol, it is a shortbarreled something.

    what about the carbine kit for the beretta neos? i think it was ruled that you can put a stock on a pistol and it is legal as it is already registered as a handgun.

    edit: crap, the one they show is different from the one i saw before they came out. http://www.shopberetta.com/e2wItemMain.aspx?functionId=009000008&parentID=019000844
    looks like it has a long barrel now.

    the original was going to be a pistol with a stock

    maybe being able to ship to cali is the reason for the change.

    It is legal to convert a pistol to a rifle w/ no paperwork or tax, as long is it has a 16' barrel and the appropriate overall length. Converting a rifle/shotgun into a pistol without the tax and paperwork is, however, illegal.
